Video: Former DOJ Lawyer: Lynch, Comey Could Have ‘Intimate Knowledge’ of Alleged Wiretapping
ACRU Policy Board member J. Christian Adams speaks to Fox & Friends Weekend on March 4, 2017 about President Trump’s allegations that President Obama had phones in Trump Tower wiretapped during the 2016 election.
Former Department of Justice lawyer J. Christian Adams joined “Fox & Friends Weekend” to explain the process behind applying for a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court request as its relates to President Donald Trump’s accusations of the Obama administration wiretapping Trump Tower.
Adams said FISA is a special federal court appointed by the chief justice of the United States that reviews applications to monitor what are potentially foreign agents, influences or powers communicating or operating within the U.S.
“The attorney general of the United Sates has to certify FISA applications. They’re done by the FBI,” he said.
As such, he said former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and FBI Director James Comey may have “intimate knowledge” of any alleged wiretapping that went on at Trump Tower.
He also said former President Barack Obama was likely aware of anything that was going on.
“There are answers we can obtain if the right questions are asked,” Adams said.
Adams added that the recusal of current Attorney General Jeff Sessions from any investigations relating to the 2016 presidential campaign helps out the “career swamp bureaucrats” since no deputy attorney general has been appointed, thus delaying any investigation.
